"My dear mother recently passed away. While her loss is devastating, we were blessed to employ your company's service to assist her daily living needs over the past year. Ivy and Charity never failed to provide graceful care for our mother. They listened carefully to the family's requests and consistently carried them out with great care."

We have been clients of Companion Services of America for about two years now. Before we called the staff at CSA we were overwhelmed trying to care for an elderly parent. The entire team was great, and very responsive to our needs. The caregivers were excellent!

My mother has been a client of Companion Services of America for about Two and a half years. Before we made the call to CSA we had a revolving door of unreliable caregivers for her. Now we feel my mom has capable and dependable care. Her caregiver is upbeat, reliable, honest, and competent. She is aware of my mom's medical and our family's needs.
